Having been contacted for help by victims of the Blackbaud data breach whose information was hacked, we are taking claims for compensation forward for victims on a No Win, No Fee basis.
There are thought to be over 120 organisations affected so far by the breach, including multiple universities and charities. A wealth of data was exposed in the attack which led to Blackbaud reportedly paying the ransom that was demanded by the hackers who managed to access the information.
If you have been told that you are affected by the cyberattack, we may be able to help you.
The Blackbaud data breach has arisen from the US-based software company that provides systems for the administration of education, fundraising and financial management being hacked. It is thought that the company became aware of the cyberattack back in May and paid the ransom that was demanded.
Having paid the ransom, the company may feel confident that the matter is done with and that the hackers have upheld their end of the ransom agreement and destroyed the data that had been exposed. This does not mean that the information involved should now be deemed as safe, and if one set of hackers has managed to expose the data, we cannot know for sure if previous events have not occurred as well. This kind of information could be incredibly valuable for fraudsters, so the ongoing risks remain real.
Data exposed from Blackbaud being hacked is understood to have included:
It is clear to see that this is precisely the kind of information that hackers could use to exploit for financial gain. In the wrong hands, this could do serious damage to the victims, and the distress suffered by victims for the loss of control of their personal information could be severe. Data breach compensation amounts can account for both these types of claims.
It has been confirmed by the Information Commissioner’s office (ICO) that over 120 organisations have been affected by Blackbaud being hacked so far.
Several organisations have been involved in the Blackbaud data breach, and more information about additional ones have hit the headlines over the last few days. Several universities including Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Staffordshire, and York have been affected. The National Trust recently confirmed that they too were affected, and other charities have also come forward as victims of the attack.
It is expected that the number of individuals whose information has been exposed in the attack will easily be in the thousands given the number of those involved above.
If your information has been hacked as a result of the Blackbaud data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation with us today on a No Win, No Fee basis.
